Girl Scout Brownie (2-3)

Brownie_GGGSWelcome Girl Scout Brownies! There are so many things to do in Girl Scouting that are made just for you! Earn badges, experience your first camp-out, visit a museum, participate in community service projects and more. A Girl Scout Brownie has the opportunity to discover the world around her as she learns more about herself, family and friends.

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting is an all-in-one handbook and badge program that complements Girl Scout Leadership Journeys featured in the tabs below. The guide introduces girls to the Girl Scout experience at every level. It’s an updated badge program focused on life skills for 21st century girls. It’s a scrapbook and journal so that every girl can make every experience uniquely her own. And, it’s designed to work with Girl Scout Leadership Journeys to provide girls with the benefits of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Learn more.

Girl Scout Brownie Uniform

Girl Scout Brownies wear the Girl Scout Brownie Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide Girl Scout/Girl Guide organization. Brownies wear a sash or vest to display official pins and awards. The unifying look includes wearing the sash or vest combined with a solid white shirt and khaki pants or a skirt.

This “uniform” is required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout Movement (such as in a parade or while performing community service).
